    The Wellington 66 one was awesome Jennifer thanks for that also,,,so many memories came back from that,,, tho I  didn’t have the sound on if it had speech???..

     

    SO many memories of these Phone boxes Val ,,,,its like yesterday!!!  Sometimes  used  pennies ,,,,but then also

    Used to tap out the numbers (take them away from 10) cos often didn’t have the coins to put in!!!lol

      (1964)  New Zealand National Film Unit presents Amazing New Zealand! 

    Light-hearted in tone, this film presents New Zealand as a land of contrasts and notes some of the amusing oddities or incongruities to be found on a trip through the two main islands. Nature provided some of the contrasts – alpine and tropical flowers, steaming hot lakes and the surrounding snowfields, calm lakes and turbulent waterfalls. There are characteristic distinctions also between the cities.
